    Laboratory Requirements

    • All students MUST COMPLETE 1,200 MINUTES of laboratory work in order to take the Regents exam in June. 
    • Completed laboratory work includes a final report that has received a satisfactory grade. These reports will remain on file in the classroom.  Do not keep labs in your binder. 
    • Hand labs in on time.  Late reports will lose 5 points for each day late. 
    • Following each lab, there may be a lab quiz.  If your lab partner is doing all the work you will not be successful on the quiz.  If you don't know what you are doing in the lab, ask questions!!
    • If a student is absent from class during lab, it is the student's responsibility to arrange for making up the lab.  Lab make-ups will be available for 2 weeks.  After that time, the lab is closed and make-ups for a grade are no longer available.
